Background
Here's the new album from one of the most underrated Swedish AOR bands going around: Miss Behaviour. We've written about them quite often at GDM click here, so it is always an occasion to celebrate when anything new is released by the band. In 2016, Ghosts seem to be making a frequent appearance in the rock/metal landscape. First we had Treat with 'Ghost Of Graceland', then power metallers Theocracy turn up with 'Ghost Ship', and now we have this one. Georg Siegl and AOR Heaven have been very supportive of Miss Behaviour, and upon hearing 'Ghost Play', I can see why. This is simply too good to ignore.




The Songs
I'm all for the song structures, the killer keyboard lines, huge stacked choruses and razor cutting guitar work. 'Friendly Fire' is the first of many highlights to be found on this latest effort. Just listen to the cinematic keyboards and fat chorus. Not forgetting Sebastian Roo's tenor vocal. The video for the song is listed below. Miss Behaviour take us in deeper, 'The Magician' and 'The War Inside' with its insistent chorus both setting us up for further fun along the way. AOR approved synths breach the intro on 'Savage Heart'; it won't take you long to get lost in this one folks! We then come face to face with some super melodic guitar lines on 'Brothers Of War', with six-stringer Erik Heikne taking control here. The title-track 'Ghost Play' delves into ballad territory, though the track features some sizzling synth stabs amid the delicate piano work. However, toward the back-end of the album, I feel the quality drops slightly, with songs like 'Night Moves' and 'Walking In Shadows' not really shifting my consciousness. On 'All Eyes On You', Roo's sounds like Claus Lessman from Bonfire and more recently Phantom 5. Kinda ok if you like that comparison, but I didn't. The closing ballad 'Save The World' is piano led, but I think I would've preferred a better exit plan.


In Summary
Most of the GDM faithful have enjoyed many of the new releases that have been featured on the site in recent times. I think I'll be listening to 'Ghost Play' for a few weeks yet. I will go on record and say that the AOR Heaven roster, as evidenced by strong releases from the likes of Sunstrike and Wickman Road (for example) should be held in equal consideration alongside the usual suspects. Only too glad to assist Georg and his fine roster, and I look forward to many interesting projects coming out of his stable in future. Need I say anything more about Miss Behaviour, your CD collection won't be complete without this little gem!

Been playing this a fair bit the last couple of days. Initial impressions are positive but also that it is not quite as strong as 'Double Agent', and as you say George, the quality tails off somewhat, which is not something I could say about 'DA' which was strong throughout. I have in truth struggled with what I call 'pure AOR' this year, it's all a little too generic for me at the moment, but it might just be a phase I'm going through!. Still, definitely one of the better releases within this particular genre this year.
